The winter migration of gray whales is creating a spectacular sea life show off our coast. KTLA's Gayle Anderson explains where the best places for whale watching are in the 'Gayle On The Go' report.
Winter Whale Watching
Harbor Breeze Cruises
100 Aquarium Way, Dock #2
Whales: Voices in the Sea Exhibit
Aquarium of the Pacific
100 Aquarium Way
Marine life experts are calling this the “winter of the whale!” That’s because in addition to the migrating Gray whales, experts from the Aquarium of the Pacific and Harbor Breeze Cruises are spotting Orcas, Fin, and Humpback whales.
Whale watchers can listen to the whales they see and can learn more about whale communication by exploring the award-winning Whales: Voices in the Sea multimedia exhibit at the Aquarium.
Sink or Swim: Designing for a Sea Change
Annenberg Space for Photography
2000 Avenue of the Stars
The photographic exhibit Sink or Swim: Designing for a Sea Change is open to the public FREE at the Annenberg Space for Photography in Century City. This engrossing exhibit explores the human story of resilience, from adaptation for survival to ambitious infrastructure planning, in some of the richest and poorest of the world’s coastal communities. Rather than showing pristine architectural photography, the photographs present viewers with various human responses to changes in their landscapes due to sea level rise. Sink or Swim aims to foster critical dialogue through the provocative juxtaposition of diverse responses to a challenge shared by millions worldwide.
Curated by architecture writer and radio host Frances Anderton with the Annenberg Space for Photography, Sink or Swim features newly commissioned and archival works by photographers Iwan Baan, Stephen Wilkes, Paula Bronstein, Jonas Bendiksen and Monica Nouwens. This is the first exhibition for Annenberg Space for Photography to feature commissioned works. Through the work of this select group of architectural, fine art and news photographers, the exhibition casts an eye on both the problem of climate change in densely populated coastal regions and contemporary design as a means to navigate the changing landscapes.

Pompeii: The Exhibition
California Science Center
700 Exposition Park Drive
323 724 3623
This is the last weekend we can see Pompeii: The Exhibition. What nature destroyed, it also preserved.
See more than 150 precious artifacts on loan from the Naples National Archaeological Museum in Italy, which offer a glimpse into the opulent lifestyle and tragic end of this ancient Roman society forgotten for centuries until its rediscovery over 250 years ago.
From garden frescoes and marble statues to gladiator armor, coins and currency to religious altars and shrines — all set in their original surroundings — experience daily life in this once vibrant Roman city. Then, as the floors shake and the walls rumble, relive the Mount Vesuvius volcano’s catastrophic eruption through an immersive CGI experience, culminating in the reveal of full body casts of twisted human forms, asphyxiated by extreme heat and noxious gases and forever frozen in time.
Through excavated artifacts, multimedia experiences, and hands-on science exhibits, guests will learn the science of archaeology, volcanology, and Roman engineering while exploring the ancient civilization of Pompeii.
